Last night Childhelp dedicated a night to Hollywood Heroes . The star-studded event happened at the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills with performances by Laura Marano and Jake Miller as well as DJ Tom Macari. Celebrities such as Cedric Yarbrough, Chelsea Kane, Jen Lilly, Tom Schwartz, Cherie & Sean Faris, Jan Luis Castellanos and Ellery Sprayberry attended.
Guests learned about how they can support Childhelp, the country’s oldest and largest non-profit dedicated to treating and preventing child abuse, and enough money was raised to buy a new horse for the children who reside at the Childhelp Merv Griffin Village in Beaumont, California. Guests also learned about Thoughtfully Gift’s Initiative and sipped on Peroni & Smith Devereux Wine.
Child abuse is reported every 10 seconds in the U.S, and an average of five children die every single day in this country as a result of child abuse and neglect. Childhelp is the country’s oldest and largest non-profit dedicated to the treatment and prevention of child abuse founded nearly 60 years ago. Childhelp has saved over 10 million kids through their national programs and services including a 24-hour Child Abuse Hotline. Childhelp’s Foster Care & Adoption Services help children find good long-term matches to ensure that every child’s future is brighter than their past.
ABOUT CHILDHELP: Childhelp exists to meet the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. The internationally respected nonprofit is the largest organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect as well as at-risk children. We focus our efforts on advocacy, prevention, intervention, treatment and community outreach. The founders of Childhelp, Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, started the organization from the ground up and have grown it to help the lives of millions of children across the world. We credit our success at Childhelp to our founders’ visionary beliefs, which are the heart of the organization:
- Childhelp believes that every child has a unique contribution to make to the world. We do everything within our power to help each child heal and develop self-esteem to reach their God-given potential.
- We believe unconditional love is the foundation upon which all healing begins. The entrance of each Childhelp facility features the words “All Who Enter Here Will Find Love.”
- These children, who have seen the worst that life has to offer, deserve the best that we can provide while they are in the care of Childhelp.
